Chinatown, Sydney

2.6
#4 of 16 in Neighborhoods in New South Wales
Sydney's Chinatown is the oldest and largest Chinatown in Australia. Some top-tier Chinese chefs moved to Sydney in the 1990s, making this district world-famous for its Asian cuisine. There are Asian shops and open-air markets selling everything from traditional Chinese medicinal herbs to jewelry, meat, fish, flowers, vegetables, books, electronics, and inexpensive souvenirs. Several movie theaters offer daily screenings of documentary and feature films produced in Asia. Asian art galleries, restaurants, karaoke bars, shopping malls, and small boutiques attract visitors from around the world. While you can visit the area on your own, there is so much to see here, many tourists opt to join an official tour.

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
